Thanks so much Kaye. That was very sweet of you. The time of year for this shoot is coming up at the end of next month/beginning of December. I'm looking forward to it as I have a new wide angle. It really is such a beautiful thing to see as the grass flows over the rocks. #8068858

I think this shot was actually the inspiration for my eelgrass shots which I took on 12/ was mostly cloudy but the sun peeked out for about 5 minutes to get that very cool lighting. So, thank you for the inspiration!! #8210023

Once a year around November the tide goes low enough to uncover the Eelgrass here. After the sun hits it, so it's only visible about 2 days a year if we are lucky. Taken from Arroyo Burro across Santa Barbara Channel with Channel Islands in the Distance. (TH_Nov08, N_Oct08,N_SEP08)
